Date response for base update; “Immediate action must be taken”

Orhan Ülgür, Chairman of the 2Plan Executive Board, emphasized that the official step for the assessment update should be taken as soon as possible.

The expectation of SCT reduction, which the automobile market in Turkey has been in for a long time, has been launched as an expectation that will not be realized with a statement made recently through official channels. Instead, it draws attention to the sharing of the information that preparations are made for the regulation of the tax base, which will have the characteristic of stretching in the tax brackets. With the regulation announced by the Ministry that it will be implemented on December 1, 2022, we may see price reductions of up to 100 thousand TL in some models. In this context, vehicles in the price/performance segment, which are within the 60 percent segment, are also in question to decline to 45 percent. The process, in which it became clear that new base segments will not be created, has almost locked the market until 1 December. While users are waiting for both new and second-hand vehicle purchases, 2Plan Orhan Ülgür, Chairman of the Executive Board, made a remarkable call regarding the process.

“Base update will be damaging if not done immediately”

Emphasizing that after the official announcement of the decision to take the update step, the sales process stopped completely; “Giving the 1st December date for the SCT base update made it impossible for the used car market to move until that date, as our dealers informed us. Necessary steps need to be taken as quickly as possible in order to resolve this extraordinary state of stagnation. If possible, a step should be taken today or tomorrow. Otherwise, waiting will harm every segment, from the consumer to the industry.” he stated.

After the meeting held to evaluate the latest developments in the sector and to address the problems experienced, OYDER President Dr. Altug Ercis; “As OYDER’s Board of Directors, we visited the Ministry of Treasury and Finance of the Republic of Turkey to discuss the problems related to the sector, as in every possible opportunity.
